What does this information mean?

An erudite alchemist named Layth requests a number of lion organs from the valley nearby. I'll first need to find this black-clad female hunter and get the traps from her, then place them around the fallen druid ring where I can lure the lions. Only after the traps are sprung upon these lions can I bypass their magical wards and slay them. And I better not forget to harvest their organs. After all, that's what Layth's paying for.


  • Note: This is a 7 minute timed quest.
  • Found in all versions of Zek, the Scourge Wastes:
  • Even gathering skill is not needed to start harvesting, it's recommended to have harvesting skill of 450. otherwise you'll need to much time to harvest the lions


  1. Find the black-clad hunter and you'll find Layth's lion traps. Click the bag by her body ( 132, 16, -7 ) /waypoint 131.73, 15.99, -7.00.
  2. Place a lion trap inside the Druid Ring ( 216, 15, 110 ) /waypoint 216, 15, 110.
